DIY Eyelash Serum

I've been asked several times about eyelash serum.  So I've done research and we now offer Organic Castor Oil (comes with a lash brush).

Basically you'll brush your lashes and make sure the roots have a light coating (the part touching the eyelid).  But for the more adventerous we have found a basic recipe:

1 tsp Organic Castor Oil
1 tsp Emu Oil (you can use Organic Almond Oil from grocery store)
1/2 tsp Organic Coconut Oil
10 drops Vitamin E (about 2 capsules)

Mix all ingredients and store in a small dropper bottle or air tight container.

To use, squeeze one drop on to your finger or a cotton swab and gently massage into lash line. I prefer to do this at night to let it work overnight before washing my face in the morning.

Use daily for best results.

TIP: This can also be used on eyebrows to help with thinning eyebrows.
This will last up to a year as long as it is kept in an air tight container and not contaminated with a liquid. You can wash lash brush in hot soapy water and let air dry.

CBD - What is it and Why Use it?

First I want to start with we are NOT allowed to sell CBD Oil on our website.  BUT I do offer it at shows and through invoice.  Info@JnJFarmKY.com for more information.

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 2 Parkinson's and I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cervical Cancer within 1 week of each other in May of this year.

So far so good on my, waiting to heal to do follow-up PAP to make sure I'm cancer free, BUT hubby is on Rytary for Parkinson's. One of the side effects is anxiety.  WOW!!  His 1st attack scared me!!  BUT I mentioned the problem with a friend and he prompted me to do research on CBD.

I'd heard about it and worked at several shows with vendors offering CBD but could NEVER get an honest answer or explanation about their products.  At one show the vendor was selling Hemp Oil which is NOT CBD!!

I contacted several companies and finally found one that not only explained in PLAIN English and showed me examples and sent a free box for hubby to try.

The difference is surprisingly simple:
These plants contain low levels of cannabinoids including the two most commonly known: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). The oil is extracted from the hemp plants by pressing the seeds they produce. Since hemp seeds do not contain any THC, the extracted oil does not contain any as well.

 I have since become a wholesaler for CBDistillery.  Why? 
1) They have ranked in the top 10 CBD companies for the last 5 years;
2) They 3rd party test EVERY batch AND test for heavy metals; and,
3) I set my OWN prices! 

Since by VA State Law I cannot offer my products online, but you can email me and I can invoice you for the items you want. 

ALL orders over $49 is FREE SHIPPING! 

We offer a few items:


 

For documentation on CBDistillery's record:

Elderberry Syrup Recipe


If you are interested in adding elderberry to your diet for its immune system boosting properties, a teaspoon of elderberry syrup per day is a conservative recommended daily serving. ... If you are fighting cold and flu symptoms, a conservative recommendation is to take up to 4 teaspoons per day until symptoms subside. I usually use 2 teaspoons in the morning and 2 more in the evening.

Elderberry Syrup Recipe

This elderberry syrup is thought to be a natural remedy for cold and flu symptoms. When taken within 48 hours of symptoms, it's been shown to reduce the duration of symptoms by up to 4 days. I like to sweeten it with honey, which is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to help suppress coughing in children. 

1/2 c dried elderberries (2.5oz of dried)
2 cups water
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced (optional)
1 tablespoon turmeric (optional)
1/2 cup honey, maple syrup, stevia syrup or date sugar

Combine the elderberries, water, turmeric and ginger in a small saucepan over high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat and allow the mixture to simmer until the water has been reduced by half, about 45 minutes.

While boiling/reducing start preparing clean bowl with fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth over colander. When syrup has reduced by half; pour carefully into bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press on the berries in the strainer, to extract all of the juice, then discard the pulp left in the strainer. 

Let the elderberry juice cool to room temperature, so that the heat doesn't harm the nutrients in the honey, then stir in the honey. Use a whisk to incorporate it smoothly, then transfer the syrup into a sealed glass jar that you can store in the fridge. 
Your syrup should keep well for at least two weeks when stored in the fridge, so if you don't think you'll use it all before then, feel free to freeze it until you're ready to use more.  

Notes:
  • If you choose to omit the sweetener, you’ll just be left with elderberry juice, which will spoil much more quickly in the fridge. You can freeze it in ice cube trays, however, for longer shelf life.

Floral Water Recipe

We've been asked what type of water can be used in our Seaweed Detox Mask, Activated Charcoal or any of our Clay's when making your own masks.  

We have a simple recipe:

1 cup distilled water
1/2 cup (1/2oz) flowers 
        (rose, lavender, amla berry, etc)

Boils or microwave water, pour over herbs.  Let steep about 15 minutes, strain then cool before use.  You can store in back of fridge between uses or do what I do, pour and freeze in ice cube tray.  I keep in a small ziploc baggie in freezer and pull one out when I'm ready for SPA night.

You can add Essential oils (we offer 1ml and 5ml for experimenting) to enhance your experience.

Herbs are also wonderful ways to enhance your experience!  Each herb has it's own properties.  We offer lots of choices for the herbs that works best for you! You can check out our Articles Section for ideas and suggestions.

Homemade Natural Bug Spray Recipe


3 1/2 ounces (which is basically 1/3 cup) of Witch Hazel or cheap Vodka
1/2 teaspoon Lemongrass Oil
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
1/2 teaspoon Citronella Oil
Combine all ingredients in a small four-once spray bottle you can get at dollar store.
When you use it, be sure to shake the bottle contents before spraying as the oils separates from the witch hazel.

* We like using only Lemon Eucalyptus Oil because it works better.  I know of a lady who uses Lavender and Peppermint, these haven't worked for me.  The FDA recommends Lemon Eucalyptus Oil.

We offer our Insect Repellent Starter Kit for your convenience!
